I am an opiniated person, so I really hated this piece. I didn't like this guy and made it hard for me to want to read what he had to say. We have very different beliefs and thought I respect others beliefs and opinions, he slammed mine. I think before reading this, I never thought that having the writers opinion was a big issue. I retract the statement now that I have read this story. But I have read other stories that have had opinion in it, so how much opinion is too much? I think opinion is ok if you don't slam the others points of views.
